Timothy Leary And The Maynard Ferguson Experience

4 posts in this topic

Sounds as if Maynard helped spark Leary’s initial trip, so to speak, into the realm of LSD:

”One such individual of indeterminate occupation was Michael Hollingshead who came to see Leary from England, toting a mayonnaise jar of LSD—enough for 10,000 doses. Having already initiated jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and his wife, Hollingshead and the new converts turned up at Leary’s house.  Seeing the look on Ferguson’s face, Leary tried some acid and became another instant convert.  LSD now became the focus of his psychedelic research.”

From Harry Shapiro’s Waiting For The Man: The Story Of Drugs And Popular Music

Must... eschew... “high notes” puns...

"When Leary noticed that Ferguson's face was glowing like an electric toaster, he decided to join them."
